Definitely a couple nice areas, however the rush hour commute is a nightmare.

Thanks everyone for the input. Getting out away from Pontiac sounds like just the ticket.

Woody9! How about I move next to you and you can help me get my RV setup in place? I'll provide the beer!

IMO go north. Lake Orion, Oxford, Ortonville, Grand Blanc and Holly. All nice areas within a 45 min drive and slime chance of HOA's.

My condolences. I grew up in Michigan. Beautiful place for 3-4 months a year with tons of camping, but winters are brutal.

I live quite a ways north of Pontiac but can tell you that I too would recommend getting as far north of Pontiac as you dare want to commute on a daily basis. Why? Because once you start camping "up north" as we call it, you'll want to go that direction every weekend and the farther north you already live, the less you have to drive. Plus the Detroit metro area traffic is ridiculous.

One thing you have to remember about commuting, come winter time, you're going to be surrounded by a bunch of yahoos trying to still drive the speed limit on a skating rink because they don't want to leave early for work or are in a stupid rush to get home. So, if you're ok with a 45 minute commute, plan on that being almost double that for most of the bad winter months (mid December through mid March). I commuted 45 minutes one way everyday for 15 years so I could live in the country. Living 5 minutes away from work now, even though it's the city, has been much nicer for the past 4 years. Our camper is in a nice storage lot 2 minutes from the house and we are 3 minutes from the interstate that takes us straight north to the north country.
